      MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says he was surprised to learn he had received a haircut from one of the suspects in the theft of a multi-million dollar Stradivarius violin.

      The man, Universal Allah, worked at a Milwaukee barber shop.

      Barrett says he was walking through the neighborhood, stopped into the shop to say hello and was asked if he wanted a haircut. He said yes.

      The mayor said Thursday that after Allah was arrested, his staff discovered a picture of him in the barber's chair on the suspect's Facebook page.
